So, can you link me to a positive proposal to do the elemental
foundation of this, and point to a realistic (and Foundation
supported) proposal to the community to standardize licence templates
on Commons?

Do this and you are most of the way there.

As someone who has uploaded 400,000 images to Commons with a variety
of licences, I would welcome this proposal rather than doing it the
wrong way around. Right now a rationale of blaming underpinning
infrastructure not being ready for MV, after rolling it out, looks
like setting your house on fire in order to give your husband
sufficient motivation to check the smoke alarm.
